Stop twitter updating facebook status

As expected, Facebook now lets you send your status updates to Twitter.

Some people prefer to keep their Facebook private, while Twitter lends itself to more impersonal interaction and updates.

Although there are services that send every tweet to Facebook, that isn't always the ideal solution for users.

I was able to build this new feature from start to finish as a summer engineering intern.

Now, Facebook is apparently going to do the same thing for individual profiles.

That means if you have a Twitter account, you can make it so that updating your Facebook status publicly will send out a tweet as well.

A few third-party apps have done this in the past, but Facebook has been meticulous at blocking them.

It cuts down their workload significantly since they only have to publish updates on their Facebook Page, and the Twitter account automatically sends out the same messages.
